Lenovo Fans/Users - which lightweight model do you prefer for business use? X1 Carbon or Vega? Carbon seems like the winner for me but wonder how much functionality you get out of the tablet and stylus for note taking. I currently have the HP x360 (which has a tablet mode) and it’s hot garbage ( as been widely reported on this board), which is why I’m leaning Carbon.

Definitely I would go for the X1 Carbon. For the Vega, it depends on which version. If it’s 2018 or later then they are viable. But the Carbon is versatile and good run for battery life and app performance.

I have the thinkpad x1 yoga and i love it... I don’t use the tablet all the time but when I do I’m so happy I have it. I will say i think the battery life could be better but it charges super quickly so it’s fine

I have the x1 yoga and it works great

I have a yoga laptop. Be careful the hinge is weak and can cause the screen to break. Mine is cracked and it’s so expensive to get it repaired that I use it as a desktop machine with a secondary monitor

Love my Yoga, also love the Spectre but only when at a desk and docked (my BYOD). Yoga touchpad and use in portability is just a better design.

The problem I had with the spectre was that it couldn’t handle having more that 1-2 apps at open at a time given all the background stuff Deloitte installed on my computer. I believe the option would be for the latest model of either the Carbon or the Yoga and they appear very similar with the only difference being the tablet on the yoga and the trade off for weight with the Carbon.
